Understanding gender in its entirety is a huge necessity in our society. Whether it is to simply accept that there is more outside the dualistic masculine/feminine binary we’ve created, or to fully understand each point on the spectrum, as people feel more comfortable fully…

With cards that seem scary, or at least come across as an obviously difficult card, it is especially important to really crack into them and get to the core of it. We do this so that we can see how to interact with the card in a healthy manner.
Today we’re going to look at the element and number of the card, the two components that give a broader understanding of the 3 of Wands, before we get into the specific imagery tomorrow.
Today we’ll start looking at more universal understandings of the card, starting first with the element and number.
The 2 of Pentacles is an assurance that so far you’re keeping everything in balance. However, it can also be a reminder that you need to look after yourself in order to do so.
There are two ways to look at the suit of Earth in the Tarot: that as Pentacles and that of Coins. Papus explains that the suit of Pentacles is where we transition ourselves. Just as tens can be the end of a cycle in each suit, so too are the Pentacles, and they elevate us to the next level.
By this point you’ve developed your own understanding of the 2 of Cups after taking time to observe the 2 in your own decks and by meditating with it. Through doing this you’re developing your own experiences with the card, and hopefully connecting with the deeper essence of it.
The 2 of Wands is not just a single Wand, but two of them, and one might even think of them as two Aces teaming up to create another. In this regard, we have the initial idea of the Ace of Wands, paring with the action element of the Wands, and thus, we have creation, duality, balance and harmony.
We look at these two aspects so that when we are in the moment of reading the card, we can remember the foundation upon which it is built, and use that to guide us in our interpretation.

It is through the Actionable energy of Fire, the Intellectual energy of Air, and the Emotional energy of Water that we can bring our Will into the real world, to make manifest. You need the drive, the know-how, and the love of what you are doing to be able to achieve it and bring it to fruition.
This is the only Ace that doesn’t depict any Yod, indicating it is a card of the material and mundane plane. This is the beginning of finding our feet. We have spent time developing our emotions, our energy and our intellect, and now we must participate in the physical world. This is the beginnings of that development.
However, if we are aware of what we are saying, if we are aware of what we are thinking, of the knowledge we share, and we concentrate on using the energy of Air for positive means, then while there are difficult lessons within the suit of Swords, we can still gain positive experiences, and thus, create positive experiences.
In order for our ideas to be heard, we must communicate with them. In order for us to understand our ideas, we must have good comprehension. Understanding the dual nature of how we communicate, how we understand, and the ideals we hold to be true can determine how our reality is shaped, and how we influence the world around us.

Water is necessary for our survival. We are composed of it, the earth is covered in it, and every living in on it requires it, making it one of the most precious things on the planet. We keep ourselves clean with it, clean our food with it, and play in it. It is nourishing and relaxing, fun and relieving.
In numerology, 10 would always reduce to 1, but in the Tarot, 10 has it’s own meaning and correlation, and thus while it can be reduced, it isn’t. Thus, there is a special link between the two numbers, in that both resent and end and a beginning.
